leave the e.u. as the headlines the news continues after inside story. stepping up peace efforts in yemen the un's attempts to revive talks to end the civil war find support from key players but what will it take to stop the vicious cycle of violence death disease and hunger in one of the world's poorest countries this is inside story.
8:22 pm
hello welcome to the program i'm adrian finnigan the un's last attempt a few weeks ago to bring the warring sides in yemen to the table failed but who didn't make it to geneva blaming travel problems but the u.n. special envoy martin griffiths refuses to give up and he's hopeful that. take place of zeros but at smith reports. so yemen's foreign minister khalid money says his government is prepared to recognize the who is this as a political movement through a democratic process he says but what his government is not prepared to accept is the who thinks becoming the yemeni equivalent of the lebanese group hezbollah hezbollah is a heavily armed reining backed group in lebanon and it holds considerable influence over political life in lebanon and you know and i'm going to frequent with a show of the yemeni government made many concessions during the consultations in kuwait but there are red lines that cannot be crossed like not allowing in yemen
8:23 pm
what is happening in lebanon where a party like hezbollah creates hurdles in the political process. and the government could accept the hooty this is a political movement within the political community in the country through a democratic process that reflects their true size. and the foreign minister he's tweeted has tweeted that he fully supports un proposals for a new talks soon the u.s. troops are fighting alongside yemeni government forces and the u.n. special envoy for yemen he says that he's convinced the booth is are also prepared to talk so the priority now for martin griffiths is to get all sides around the table as soon as possible it's going to be within weeks i don't think we can allow it to be delayed until kind of over the horizon because the problem with that is and i've been reassured this week between people here in new york that people lose the narrative of peace and once you lose the opportunity to talk about
8:24 pm
a settlement the narrative of war becomes dominant and that's what we was trying to get away from for now though the fighting on the airstrikes continue since june much of those airstrikes have been centered around the strategically important port of the data yemen remains blockaded at sea by the u.n. is warning that the country is on the verge of an already there are reports of children dying from malnutrition and this is a conflict where at least twenty thousand people have been killed since the fighting began. well it reminds you of previous un attempts to get the warring parties in yemen together the first round of talks was held in geneva in june twenty eighth fifteen three months after the saudi led coalition entered the conflict but that meeting collapsed after yemen's government in exile accused toothy representatives of refusing to meet them later that same year the u.n.
8:25 pm
managed to organize to go see a sions that lasted for six days they agreed a mass prisoner swap but nothing else of significance fast forward to kuwait in april twenty sixth and that's the last time the sides actually met but after one hundred eight days the talks ended with no agreement. let's bring in our guests for today's discussion from london we're joined by andreas creek an assistant professor at the defense studies department at king's college london from sanaa is hussein. affairs analyst and journalist and from bristol. a political commentator and lecturer at the city of bristol college gentlemen welcome to you all address let's start with you as we heard bernard smith say that yemen's foreign minister has said that his government could accept a hoot these as a political movement through a democratic process that highlights their true size but that the who these wouldn't be allowed to become like lebanon's hezbollah their red lines that can't be crossed he said does that get us anywhere if and when the peace talks resume.
8:26 pm
right i mean for the time being i think these are not peace talks per se i think the first talks will be about a ceasefire because the war still ongoing i think peace talks will come after there is an established ceasefire and some sort of agreement of where this peace talks could actually lead the various parties the issue generally is with the yemeni foreign minister or the yemeni government the officially recognized government is that it doesn't have that much leverage and it's actually not one of the most important players and yemen in many ways it's a puppet or a surrogate of the u.a.e. and saudi arabia so they don't really make decisions on their own it is a good sign to that they are eggs or at least a willingness to accept there with these or answer a law as a political movement and political party that is part of the process because that was one of the things one of the contentious issues that for a very long time they moralities in the saudis have rejected to accept that actually they were these are part of yemen and they should be part of any political process that comes after the war the issue however is and that that will be long
8:27 pm
term the people the peace process will be to determine what is actually the actual weight of the who these in yemen and what is the kind of size that is proportionate to the kind of the kind of political and also public. weight that they have within the country and that's very difficult to determine because obviously now the who these control large parts and some of the most important parts of yemen and you know we'll have to see whether this can be represented if you then say that i'm sort of allies actually something that comes just from the northern province or that the who these are not from the northern province and therefore only represented there and get only a fraction of the kind of political say that they want to have then this obviously is not going to be something that would these will be pleased about but i think this is for a later peace agreement to be determined i think first of all showing good faith goodwill in now from both parties to say we're willing to accept the other party and accept that the other party has an input in the hoodies particularly i think is
8:28 pm
a good sign and that there's a big. ginning to suggest also to the un that there is a willingness to talk right hussein album k.t. an incident after the collapse of the geneva talks the crisis group accused who these of last minute gamesmanship that sent a clear message that they are not serious which confirm the suspicions of the coalition are the hooty is serious about peace in yemen. of course there are really a serious and we remember that they have accepted to go to the south of saudi arabia for talks as well to kuwait even though kuwait is a part of this coalition a war they did refuse to go to a country that has launched a war against them and about we know that the why it collapsed because. the delegates from sanaa what would not given any gun tease from the united the nation for their safety and for their safe return and if you just let me mention that.
8:29 pm
previous caller told saudi arabia if used to lead the yemeni. delegates to come back to sanaa and they were stuck in must cut. about seventy days so they really wanted to go to the stall today they accepted from the beginning but the what seems to be the problem that the saudi led coalition actually is you is in this kind of tolex to to to start a new operation or to start a new a new attack we know there was be a stall to before invasion or the attack of aden before the control of four morcha by the coalition forces before we have seen that the attack was conducted on a day that one of the last humanitarian line for the millions of yemeni so i don't and i think just to about what the government foreign minister have said about to
8:30 pm
accept the hoti if they will and he told about the democratic. election i mean you can talk about these things at this moment you have first if you want you have to look to yemeni civilians was damaged in yemeni civilians their military and cries in yemen you have to agree about a cease fire first and then you can. go to told anyone. if martin griffiths the u.n. envoy manages to get these these peace talks together in as little as a few weeks he says kemba who these be trusted to honor any agreement that might be reached in such such peace talks. you know this is the questions in fact you know the hooty have and fact agreed in so many occasions to for their signatures but they fail to do so they are not to be trusted at all there are several you know agreements and you know initiatives been signed between the
8:31 pm
warring you know. teams or sides but the whole theme is have never ever implemented any one of them and the reason behind that is very clear because they are backed by the iranian regime the enemy of the arabs and especially that of in the gulf countries and he cannot hoti they cannot take their own decisions that are on initiatives because they are in a doing that you know they are the proxies of the iranian regime and the other the and the other evidence is the the last you know geneva. talks were supposed to be carried out at that time and people all over the world were hoping that anything you know good will come out in a from that in a form that negotiation but unfortunately they abandoned they didn't turn up they didn't come and we were under the mr griffiths and the legitimate. government
8:32 pm
representative who are there for three days and the who see didn't turn out why because they are they haven't got the you know they could in light from the from the from the to herat regime. you talked about iran there are saudi arabia and the u.a.e. is sincere in their design it for a negotiated peace in yemen can they be trusted. if what they actually want is peace on their terms and to rid yemen of any iranian influence. no no this is not true i mean the peace the terms of the united nations resolution twenty two sixteen end of story and this is very clear why not the united nation or mr griffiths you know what cards to implement this your united nations resolution twenty two sixteen and the stand of the legitimate so you know governments and the
8:33 pm
allied forces i mean the. coalition that a coalition is ok the who thing you are not allowed to be in a to to control the whole yemen you are. a minority or you are in a part of the me yemenis people so if you want to get involved in the in the political process you're most welcome but as a military as a militia ok as a militia armed by iran. the sole enemy of the arabs know this is not accepted. the arabs allied forces they will not accept at all that the who thier will become like cause by law in lebanon or the militias in iraq no way no way they want not accept that at all so it's very clear if you want to do if you want to make peace if you are you know your excuse is human to cherry and you know issues ok accept the.
